More About the Author

Jenny Joseph has been a major poet since the 1950's, and has won numerous awards, including a Gregory Award and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize.

Product Description


'She can delineate surfaces like a sculptor - exact, precise, sharply definite - yet with a startling undertow, a pull of unease which lies just beneath the texture, as an artery beneath the skin' - Joan Forman, Eastern Daily Press 'Rational, realist, philosophical, Jenny Joseph represents a stoical refusal to see life other than it is - a less sentimental poetry it would be hard to imagine' - British Book News

About the Author

Jenny Joseph was born in Birmingham in 1932 and studied English Literature at St Hilda's College, Oxford. She was first published and broadcast by John Lehmann in the 1950s. Scorpion Press published her first book of poems, The Unlooked-for Season, in 1960, the decade in which she married, had three children and produced six children's books. Since then thirteen more books in prose and verse, for children and adults, have been published. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

Love is the driving force behind so much in life 14 May 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Love is the driving force behind so much in life. "Nothing Like Love" is an anthology of poetry from Jenny Joseph, an experienced poet with decades upon decades of experience. Showing her experience in contrast to her early work, "Nothing Like Love' will prove an intriguing and insightful read for lovers of poetry. "Cherry": Suddenly the cherry has opened./I could believe it was love/Like the babe opening its eye.//Twig thickening on the air/Has become this burst of blossom./It waves its appeal in the spring breezes;/O cherry, O open heart.
